Larry Mantle speaks with world-renowned psychologist Shelley Taylor about her research confirming that tending and nurturing are biological instincts hardwired into our genes and hormones, as important to human evolution as is searching for food or sleeping. Her new book is The Tending Instinct (Time Books).
